The 5th annual Los Angeles Beer Festival (not to be confused with the LA Vegan Beer Fest) is coming to the Paramount lot on Saturday, April 6.
A portion of your $40 ticket goes to Noah's Bark Animal Rescue. 100% of your ticket goes to securing you a 4 oz. mini mug. Don't underestimate the little guy. Use your tiny vessel to sample offerings from 80 breweries.
Math note: 320 oz. = 2.5 gal. Easy. You won’t have to skip even one.
Cali brewers represent heavily, including locals Abigaile, Beachwood BBQ, Angel City, and Venice Beach Beer Co. in attendance. Finally settle the Moose Drool vs. Trout Slayer debate once and for all at Big Sky Brewery, or go even farther afield to brewers from Iceland and Japan.
Lest you drink in silence, there is musical entertainment. Metal Shop, a parody hair band (so meta), opens the first session and Black Crystal Wolf Kids, an indie rock tribute band (wolf shirts not included), opens the second.
Bring extra cash for some grease to sop up the hops. Food trucks are on hand at both sessions (last year featured Lobos Truck, Komodo, Border Grill, and Slammin’ Sliders).
Not seeing triple yet? The afterparty continues up the street at Wirsthaus, where they'll give you a pretzel for showing your wristband.
Just don't brandish that 4 oz. mug for mustard. That baby's for beer only.
